WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Established in 2015, Bermuda Yachts is a Bermudian owned and operated company by brothers Justin and Jonathan Kempe. After designing a uniquely custom yacht, the Kempe brothers moved to South Africa in 2009, setup their own build operation, and returned 5 years later with ZARA, sailing 6,000 miles across vast oceans. As third generation charter captains, our passion and experience translate into a smooth charter experience, from start to finish. We offer a total of two yachts for charter with captain/ crew. A 77 ft sailing catamaran and a 42 ft RIB powerboat. Find out more about each boat below.
Happy Travelers Share Their Experiences
We chartered the Zara for a small, intimate wedding with our adult children. The yacht is spectacular - beautifully designed and maintained, it exceeded our expectations! Jonathan and his attentive staff were amazing and helped contribute to an unforgettable evening. It was the perfect venue to exchange our vows. Thank you for memories that will last a lifetime!
Booked the Zara for a night expedition while we were on a cruise for my parents anniversary. There were about 20+ of us and it was an amazing night time adventure. The crew of the Zara were great and my parents said it was the best part of the entire vacation.
As part of the engagement committee at PartnerRe we booked Zara for our Summer Party, and they did not disappoint. They are well organized, punctual and loads of fun. The boat is gorgeous with plenty of open deck space for all to enjoy. With a fully functioning bar and space to store food, this is one boat ride that you would not regret.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHICH BOAT IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Both boats offer unique elements which make them suited to all sorts of applications. Zara is perfect for larger groups or simply for those looking for plenty of space and comfort while Zeus is perfect for snorkel adventures to go offshore for snorkeling on the outer reef and those looking to go fast. For larger groups you can also use both together with Zara acting as the home base while Zeus takes smaller groups for rides.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
All of our boats come with a professional captain/crew included in the cost of hiring the boat. We also provide swim noodles, snorkeling gear and other water toys. For Zeus where you are allowed to bring your own drinks we provide coolers and ice for free, or we can provide the drinks for you. For Zara we have a full service bar which is charged on consumption. We do not provide towels so please remember to bring towels & sunscreen (non spray on type). A camera is always a good idea too!
DO YOU OFFER PER HEAD TOURS?
Yes for both boats you can also book tickets to jump on trips instead of chartering out the entire boat. These can be booked through Viator.com and there are links to this on the pages for each boat on this site.
DO YOU PROVIDE CATERING?
Yes, we can put you in touch with one of our catering partners. For Zara this can be a very extensive catering with hand passed canapes and full buffet. For Zeus we would recommend a simpler packed lunch which our catering partners can advise on a menu which will suit the boat best.
